Self-assembly behavior of the three types of ionic peptide, EAK16, is studied in the presence of a hydrophobic surface using coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations at three pH ranges of the solution. It is found that the peptide chains of all the three types assemble on the hydrophobic surface. EAK16-I and EAK16-II peptides assemble into ribbon-like structures, regardless of the value of pH. EAK16-IV peptide chains, however, assemble into ribbon-like structures at low and high pH ranges… CONTINUE READING
